5 Sharia Atrocities for Jay Leno and Ellen DeGeneres to Protest

4. Malaysia: Two nuns viciously attacked on church grounds

The Malaysian Insider reported Wednesday that “two Catholic nuns were viciously attacked on the grounds of the Church of Visitation in Seremban in what is believed to be a robbery attempt early this morning.”

Apparently it wasn’t universally believed that this was a simple robbery attempt: the Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM) issued a statement strongly suggesting that Islamic supremacists had attacked the nuns: “The voices of antagonism and hatred have been on the increase in the country and it would be no surprise if the attack on the nuns were not conspired by those out to cause inter-religious conflict in the country.” The CCM demanded that police investigate “this case of outright religious intimidation and fear creation and bring those responsible to justice.”

Islamic law stipulates that Christians may live in an Islamic state as long as they know their place and accept the denial of basic rights, so that they “feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29). If they question their status, their “contract of protection” (dhimma) is revoked, and their lives are forfeit. Malaysia doesn’t implement Sharia in its fullness, but such provisions still have a strong cultural influence. And with the recent controversies over the prohibition of Christians to use the word “Allah” for God, these attackers may have regarded the nuns, and all Malaysian Christians, as having forfeited any protection they might have previously enjoyed.
